Difference between Xylem and Phloem:
|1. Xylem tissue helps in the transport of water and minerals.
||1. Phloem tissue helps in the transport of food.|
Water is transported upwards from roots to all other plant parts.
Food is transported in both upward and downward directions.
|3. Transport in xylem occurs with the help of simple physical forces such as transpiration pull.
||3. Transport of food in phloem requires energy in the form of ATP.|
